Robert Indiana 

HOPE (from Artists for Obama), 2008

Silkscreen on 100% Rag Acid Free Paper
 
Hand signed and annotated Printers Proof
24 × 19 in
61 × 48.3 cm

Edition PP 1/10



This work was published in 2008 as part of the "Artists for Obama" portfolio, in which some of the top artists contributed prints to raise money for Obama's presidential campaign. Robert Indiana donated all of the proceeds of the sale of this work to electing Barack Obama. This is an extremely rare Printer's Proof (PP) which was originally in the collection of the printer of this iconic work. This is very special as it is the very first Proof (PP1/10) -- of only 10 proofs. For reference is a photograph of Robert Indiana signing the edition. And for those eagle eyed viewers, an edition of this iconic work was featured in the Cold Open of Saturday Night Live 10/10/20 -- after "Biden" (Jim Carrey) leaps up from his chair and asks his doctor to teleport him to the debate as the Pence fly.  (still photos from the SNL segment shown here for entertainment)


In 2008, Robert Indiana created an image similar to LOVE (letters stacked two to a line, the letter “o” tilted on its side), but this time showcasing the word “HOPE” and donated all proceeds from the image to the Democratic National Committee for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. A stainless steel sculpture of HOPE was unveiled outside Denver’s Pepsi Center during the 2008 Democratic National Convention and has since been installed in Times Square in New York, in front of the John Hancock building in Chicago, Illinois; and as part of several museum exhibitions. Since that time, Robert Indiana has created additional HOPE sculptures which can be found throughout the world, including the six which will be on view during Hope Day.
